New Wall Colors

This is the new color of the old laundry room.  The trim is white and the door is antique white.  Hubby has to finish the trim and then it will be all done.  He is also working on painting the bathroom.

The inside wall of the old laundry room is the original outside of the house.  Jess had this paint left over from her bedroom.  I think it looks very good on this wall.  I wish I could figure out a way to take a picture that would show how it looks all together but it is a work in progress.  Hubby will paint the trim today.   After that we plan on going over to a friends house for a visit and a haircut. 

Temperatures here are very nice.  It was 42 degrees when we got up this morning.   We decided to let the fire go out today.  YEAH!  That always makes me feel a little “springy”.    I have clothes to hang on the line (of course).  Don’t we always have laundry?

I changed my supper menu last night to fried chicken, potato salad and green beans.  It was so nice and warm.  It reminded me of picnic days.  Tonights menu will be chicken stir fry with egg rolls.  I fried enough chicken last night to have left over for tonight.  I like to do that.  It makes the cooking a little easier and faster if I the meat is cooked in advance.

Time to hang my clothes outside and listen to a little praise music from our birds.  They are starting to sing such beautiful spring songs.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Thursday

My Grace took this picture the other evening.  The clouds were beautiful.  Thanks for the picture, Grace.  Today looks as though it will be another beautiful day here in Floyd.  The sun is shining, the birds are singing praises.  Beautiful!  I am getting ready to hang clothes on the line.  So much fun.  I also just finished making some homemade yogurt.  I have not made this in a long time.  I usually make kefir.  However I am having difficulties getting it to thicken.  I think it has something to do with temperature.  Without the fire, I don’t think it is warm enough in the house for it to set.   I had this same problem last year in the spring.  So maybe I’ll just make yogurt for a while.   Must be time for a change.  School today as usual.  Hopefully we will finish getting the garden ready to plow today.  I am really ready to play in some fresh turned dirt.  Get some early crops in the ground.  Onions, lettuce, peas, cabbage. YUM!  I don’t think I’ve told you all, but we have a mama goose setting on the island on the pond.  Much excitement.  We have never had one make a nest here before.  We are certainly looking forward to seeing babies swimming around.    We have always said when the birds were singing they were singing praises to the Lord.  On another blog, I read about listening to their praise songs.  I so much like that thought.  So it is time for me to go hang some clothes on the line and listen to some beautiful praise music.  May your day be filled with the sound of praise.  God bless.

Birds

We have been entertained all day today by these beautiful birds.  Many, many birds.  Every time I looked out my dining room window, I would see 50-60 birds in our yard.  Probably 20 of these were doves.  We love feeding the birds.  They love sunflower seeds.  This morning as Hubby and I were sharing our coffee together, we listened as they sang morning praises to the Lord.  Beautiful!  We take care of them by feeding them and they take care of us by providing beautiful praise music.  I think that’s a fair trade.  It was a little distracting doing school and watching the birds, though.  Well, the fog has moved in here.  Super foggy.  High wind warnings for tomorrow and Thursday 25-30 mph  with gusts up to 50 mph.  This will be for Wednesday and Thursday.    I never knew what fog and wind could be like until we moved to Floyd.  No church tomorrow night-it’s already cancelled.  I guess it isn’t done snowing yet.  I just looked out and the snow is pouring down.  Oh well.  We are warm inside our home, our tummy’s are full and our children are happy.  Life is good!  God Bless.
